The deadline for workshop proposals has been extended one week, now: May 8, 2019 (AoE)

21st IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing (IEEE Cluster 2019)
Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, September 24-27, 2019

Important Dates:

* Workshop proposals due: May 8, 2019
* Workshop acceptance notification: May 15, 2019

Experts in cluster computing are invited to share their expertise with the
community by submitting proposals for workshops to be co-located with the
IEEE Cluster 2019 conference. The Cluster 2019 workshop program will provide an
opportunity to present preliminary work related to the topics covered by the
conference and will give attendees access to the latest works-in-progress in
the field. Workshop proposals can cover a broad range of topics on the design,
use or management of clusters and supporting technologies from throughout the
software stack.

Topic Categories:
Topic Categories of interest include but are not limited to the following:

* Cluster node and system hardware;
* Cluster/distributed operating and runtime systems;
* Parallel programming models, language, runtimes and environments;
* Performance evaluation, analysis and optimization;
* Fault-tolerance, resilience, reliability and high availability;
* Data management and distributed and parallel file systems;
* Visualization, data analytics and workflows;
* Cluster management tools including resource management;
* Power management, energy and cooling;
* High-performance networks and communication systems;
* Clouds and distributed systems;
* Combining and enabling unique workloads (e.g. concurrent machine learning,
  data-centric computing, and compute-heavy applications);
* Security.

Submission Guidelines:
Proposals are limited to a three-page description that should include the

* A title, an abstract (400 words maximum), and a syllabus;
* Discussion of the topic's relevance and workshop goals;
* A description of the target audience;

A single PDF file with all the material described above should be submitted to
the Cluster 2019 conference on-line submission (https://clustercomp.org/submit)
system underthe workshop track.  Acceptance of a proposed workshop will be
made based on thequality, content and organization, and its relationship to key
topic areas when compared with other submissions.

Workshop length will be determined based on the number of papers that they
accept.  Workshops that accept:

* 10 or more papers will be provided space for a full day program;
* 7-9 papers will be provided space for 4.5 hours (not including breaks);
